Seafood isn’t just delicious – it’s also good for you! The next time you’re craving a lobster roll, shrimp cocktail or another seafood delight, rest assured that it’s a treat for your entire body – not just your taste buds.
Here are some benefits of eating seafood:
Lean, mean protein machine
Seafood is a great way to get the protein your body needs to build muscle without the added fat that’s present in other protein sources like meat and cheese.
Give me an Omega-3
In addition to being high in protein and low in fat, seafood is also high in omega-3 fatty acids. You may have heard of these before, but did you know about the amazing array of health benefits they provide?
They maintain heart health by helping to regulate blood clotting and vessel constriction. They reduce tissue inflammation and help alleviate the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. They’re important for babies’ neurological development, both before and after birth and they may even reduce depression!
Lobster contains high amounts of calcium and phosphorus, two important nutrients for bone health. These nutrients help children grow and assist seniors in keeping their bones strong as they age, but are essential for people of all ages. Just one six-ounce serving of lobster contains 40% of your daily phosphorus requirement and 14% of your calcium requirement!
